About the Author
Bruce Lee flashed like a meteor through the world of martial arts and motion pictures, but he died suddenly on July 20, 1973 at age 32. He began his martial arts journey with kung fu at an early age, but he later matured into a philosopher, technician, scholar and innovator of the modern martial art of jeet kune do (the way of the intercepting fist). During his brief film career, Lee starred in several motion pictures:The Big Boss, Fists of Fury, Way of the Dragon and Enter the Dragon.
